The Winter House–A Short Story Film

I have been reading information online about digital storytelling and ran across the animated film, The Winter House.  Digital storytelling allows people to create their own stories through the use of computer images, text, video, audio, and music.  The stories are usually short, generally lasting no more than ten minutes.  Topics for digital storytelling can range from personal stories to historical events to fictional works. 

The Winter House written by Naomi Alderman and visualized by Jey Biddulph is an animated film, in the form of digital storytelling, that uses computer-based images, text, recorded audio narration, and music to tell the story of the central character, Millie, whose father has been murdered.  The website is designed to help young people become more interested in the short story and to get them to read more short stories online.  Read more about The Winter House here.
